around the world. that is at 7 eastern on c- span's america and the courts. this is just about nine minutes. >> a year ago when i took office in the midst of the worst recession since the great depression, i promise you two things. the first was that there would be better days ahead, and the second was that the road to recovery would be long, and sometimes bumpy. that was brought home again yesterday when we learn that in november, our economy sought its first month of job gains in nearly two years. last month, we lost war that we gained. we know that no single month makes a trend, and job losses for the final quarter of 2009 or one-tenth of what they were in the first quarter. until we see the trend of good, sustainable job creation, we will be relentless in our efforts to put america back to work. that task goes deeper than replacing the 7 million jobs that have been lost of the past two years. we need to rebuild our economy so that families can feel some measure of security again. the stories i hear tell me that they have known their own private recession since long before econom
. thanks for being with us tonight. >> glenn: hello, america. tonight we'll take on the economy. we have done our homework, our research. a lot of over the last year. tonight i just want to focus on the economy. i'm going to close the case on what is -- what barack obama has said is the fundamental transformation of our country. i believe it's the destruction of our monetary system. we've got a lot of work to do, so buckle up. here we go! ♪ ♪ >> glenn: hello, america. i brought my tv in from my childhood because i want to show you old clips tonight. tonight, i'm going to give you a hard concept to get your arms around. this one is difficult. this is what i think stops us from advancing any argument. this is a concept where you have to come to believe that there are people in this country who want to intentionally collapse our economic system. how could any american in any party, anybody who disagree with want to collapse and do something like that? well, those involved sleep fine at night, because they tell themselves that they are not collapsing, they are just fundamentally transfor
america. this is the last critical piece of the puzzle you need to understand. and you need to understand why it's being done, and how they're doing it. but first, let me share good news with you. i don't know if you've heard it yet but president obama decided to fulfill his campaign promise. giving clearly eight times to put the health care debate and all negotiations on c-span. due to mounting pressure announcing today he will open up the health care debate to the american public and broadcast the congressional proceedings on the bill on c-span. for one full hour. i call that an info meshl. that should be plenty of time to fill in citizens on every detail of the 2500 page bill, don't you think? they'll need the bill that will fundamentally transform the republic. and they'll say this president doesn't listen to the little people. get ready for an important hour helping you understand what, why, and how progress yifz are changing the structure of the nation. >> i want to start with a personal note. by the way hello, america. i don't know if i've ever told you why i believe some of the th
known black people in america to come to such a place of determination about how to face the conditions under which they were living. segregation. no right to vote. bad employment. lower or second class schooling. all of the above. and in dr. king's voice, i not only heard the passion but i also heard some clarity that the mission would not be short-term. that he was going for the long haul and not since the days of dr. dubois that i heard anybody speak with such affirmation and conviction. about our plight. tavis: what did you make of him on a personal level? obviously you have shared with us that you were taken by his presentation and by his commitment to the cause but what did you make of him on your first meeting on a personal level? >> first of all, i knew that he was 26 and i'm looking into the face of this 26-year-old, it was very difficult for me to fathom that he understood and knew so much. his maturity was well beyond his years and his academic information was well beyond the amount of schooling that he had had although he was already the possessor of a ph.d. he had done not
to miss a second of this if you want to understand what is really happening in america. c'mon, let's go! >> glenn: hello, america. hope and change. a movement that surged barack obama in the white house. but it's not the first time america has seen the political uprising of hope and change, and progress. there was hope and change way back in the early 20th century, but the name was different. it was progressivism. you heard that before. are you a progressive? it was the shiny new car. well, now wait a minute, what happened? well, back in the early 20th century, everybody wanted to take it for a spin. progressivism had no political boundaries. the democrats like woodrow wilson loved it. republicans, teddy roosevelt, loved it. america was stuck in a rut. we needed to make progress. how better to break free than to use progressive tactics? the message resonated with so many americans and progressives began winning elections. and then, they started to govern. that's where the problem came in. in the response to the repeated bank runs in the early 1900s, progressives came up with an idea. th
america's future. and additional funding is provided by the following supporters -- >>> good evening, i'm martin savidge, thank you for joining us. it was an attack so damaging that one former intelligence official described it as the cia's pearl harbor. we're talking about the suicide bombing yesterday that killed eight americans, some of them cia employees. today a spokesman for the taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. saying a bomber entered the base last night and blew himself up. it was the worst loss for the cia since the war there began more than eight years ago. yesterday's attack took place at a remote outpost known as chapman in the province of khost, along the border with pakistan. this evening the associated press is reporting that the suicide bomber was invited on to the base by americans. according to a former senior intelligence official, the man was being courted as an informants and it was the first time he had been brought inside the camp. he was reportedly not searched. much of the cia's efforts in that region including drone attacks had been focused on the
by the camera people and they did a lovely job on that. hello, america. all week we've been wondering which president would show up for the "state of the union" address. would it be the hey, people aren't digging my agenda, triangulate move to center, obama. or would it be the arrogant do-it-my-way progressive obama? i don't think we saw either of the guys show up last night. arrogant progressive, at least to me doesn't even begin to describe what i saw last night. it was more like watching, i don't know, fabio stare at himself and then that randy macho man savage part of obama educate america on how great he is. you know what i mean? one conclusion i draw from last night is the president thinks we're all stupid. america sent a clear message to washington in the recent months. his response wasn't a message of slowing down or cutting back, or even listening or responding to peech ing ting to. with a we got is keep your mouth shut and fall in line or i'll give you another speech because you were so stupid you didn't understand the last one. my plans are really great. one of the teams last nig

in america. we think of the jobs that exist here in washington, whether it's the president or vice president or members of the cabinet. but you're on the ground every day. you're in the neighborhoods. you're with real people. and nobody knows more than you do that the real -- the needs of america. and so i'm just really delighted to have a chance to be with all of you and to listen to you. i know the recession has taken a great toll. we think we've tried to -- we have made a difference at the department of transportation. i want you to know -- i know you know this and i know you'll hear this this afternoon. but president obama and all of us at the administration are redoubling our efforts this year to find new ways to grow the economy and create the jobs your communities depends on. as most of you know, i traveled last year to 66 cities. and i met many of you. and i've seen some of the amazing things that you're doing in your communities and some of the amazing products that are transforming sprawling, 21st century cities to green, clean accessible hubs of activity where people choose to liv

. outside of washington in america, the voters are angry and the president knows it. there is some fury over bailouts and big bankers and big bonuses and no jobs. tonight, at the end of his first year in office, he gets to sum up the job and look at the future. as you can see, the chamber is already filling as members of the cab a net and white house staff file in. the first lady, michelle obama, is greeting her guests in the first lady's box in the gallery. for our coverage, david gregory and andrea mitchell are in the studio. chuck todd across town in the nbc washington newsroom and kelly o'donnell, among others of our reporting staff, is in the well of the house and the chamber itself tonight. she'll be reporting from there. earlier today, the white house pretty much put on a full court press briefing small groups of journalists on their message thus far and their aims going into tonight. among the gatherings, lunch, several of us attended with the president. david gregory, moderator of "meet the press" was among the guests. david, how would you sum up what you heard today, his state of m

occupation of cuba territory. most of latin america history have some knowledge of castro's hostility towards the base. but what is generally not known is that from the early 1900s to the present, guantanamo has also been a sight for diplomatic accommodation, compromise, and cooperation. the terms dictated by the platt amendment only stated that the united states would buy or lease naval or station, buy or lease them. in cuba. it did not specify a number of such stations, nor their locations. that was a matter of negotiated compromise between the cuban president and theodore rooseve roosevelt, that the united states would obtain really only one major naval station and that would be guantanamo, not havana. now, obviously, the united states has always had the upper hand in these negotiations. when i say diplomatic compromise, i'm not suggesting that the two parties started on a level playing field. that certainly would not be the case. the second major compromise occurred in 1934 when the united states abrogated the platt amendment, which had become an increasingly unpopular with the various se
